ETAGPWS
Enhanced Terrain Awareness and Ground Proximity Warning System

– designed for corporate, regional and transportation Aircrafts in order to predict potential
conflicts between the aircraft’s flight path and terrain or an obstacle:
Enhanced Terrain Awareness

  • Provides MSL-altitude for correct terrain reference,
    based on geometric altitude
  • Reduction of CFIT-risk
  • Reduction of unsolicited alerts
  • For safe operations under temperature variations
  • Improved alerting for landing short of RWY
  • Automatic altitude callouts above RWY filed elevation, e.g. “1000”, “500”

Capabilities:

  • Combines specific aircraft inputs such as position, altitude, airspeed and glideslope with an internal terrain / obstacle / runway database
  • Internal GPS and WGS-84 card
  • Independent from atmospheric errors and erratic altimeter settings
  • Low temperature correction
  • Bank-Angle and Pitch-Angle warning in case of exceeding angles

Components:

  • Terrain-database
  • External GPS
  • Radio-Altmeter
  • Air Data Computer
  • Interface to PFD and ND

 

EEDM
Enhanced Engine Data Management System

– monitoring instrument for piston engine Aircraft. Helps the pilot to constantly watching over the health and usage of the Aircraft in flight for improved engine efficiency, smoother engine operation, and reduced operating costs:
Enhanced Engine Data

  • Monitoring the engine parameters in
    permanence ( 3x/sec )
  • Warnings if parameters exceeds the programmed limits
  • Fuel-Flow gauge with full GPS-interface

Capabilities:

  • Real-time fuel-flow including totalization and remaining endurance
  • Digital leaning mode
  • CARB temperature

Components:

  • GPS-antenna
  • USB data storage ( 100hrs )
  • EGT and CHT probes for 4 and 6 probes

 

HUMS – HEALTH
Airframe trend and health monitoring system

– collects data and performs analysis of the aircraft usage.
Helps the owner, the operator and the maintainer to track and manage the usage of the Aircraft. Tracking and monitoring of:
airframe health

  • flight-hours
  • landings
  • in-service-events
  • maintenance actions
  • All with relevant times and GPS-data
  • Determination of the a.m. effects on the aircraft

Capabilities:

  • measurement of 3-axis and 2-axis acceleration in conjunction with GPS data
  • recording on SD memory card
  • optional real-time downlink of relevant data if satcom datalink in place

Components:

  • GPS-antenna
  • portable data storage device ( e.g. TrendBox200 )
  • structural analysis program ( running on webbased PC )

 

Satcom
Satellite-based voice-and data communication

– designed for commercial and business aviation in order to ensure in-flight communication with Air traffic control and the operator’s dispatch in areas of insufficient radio-coverage for:
typical airto ground

  • ATC-clearances in controlled flights
  • flight-following
  • Aircraft performance monitoring
  • Weather report uplinks
  • FPL re-routing

Capabilities:

  • Inmarsat Classic Services and SBB DP
  • Ka & Ku band for real-time video streaming
  • Iridium for worldwide coverage including polar regions

Components:

  • Airborne segments: ATSU / CMU data management unit, transceiver for voice- and data transmission via satellite
